Last episode I chatted with Scarborough area MP Salma Zahid. In that enlightening conversation one of the things we learned about Salma was that her political mentor is George Smitherman.

Today, we talk with the one-time Toronto mayoral candidate, former Liberal MPP and Ontario’s first openly gay MPP and Ontario cabinet minister, George Smitherman.

Here’s my conversation with George Smitherman.
